One of Richmond’s very own will travel to New York to compete in ‘The Manhattan Experience.’

Kim is competing against five other finalists for the crown of the ‘Master of the Manhattan.’

The winner of the competition wins an all-expenses paid trip for two to London to experience London Cocktail Week in October.

The Manhattan Experience takes place Monday, May 20 at the NoMad Hotel.
